Open call : Busan Architecture & Urban Media Competition

2019 Busan Architecture & Urban Media Competition

1. Theme: Memory & Oblivion (A matter concerning the method of existence)
Philip Johnson once said, "Some civilizations are remembered only by their architecture," while Aldo Rossi stated that, "Memory is the consciousness of the city. The city itself is the collective memory of its people, and like memory, it is associated with objects and places. The city is the locus of collective memory." Such a belief indicates that architecture can be a means of forming the identity of the city itself by creating places and memories for humans. Modern people endure living in an era of chaos as they have lost their memories which conflicted with the remaining images of the memory of the city and the prevalent destruction of the environment. In this regard, this media exhibition aims to present the time/space of memory and oblivion, which modern people now have to accept as their destiny.

Anyone who has a keen interest in architecture and the city (unrestricted to nationalities).
